TSS - Temporary Skill Shortage - Subclass 482

This visa enables employers to address labour shortages by bringing in skilled workers where employers can't source an appropriately skilled Australian worker.

There are three streams for this visa:

  • the Short-term stream for up to two years (or four years if an international trade obligation applies)
  • the Medium-term stream, for up to four years; and
  • the Labour Agreement stream, for up to four years, where the nominating employer has an approved labour agreement.

Applicants for this visa must be nominated by an employer to work in an occupation on the list of eligible skilled occupations for your stream and have two years of relevant work experience. For the Labour Agreement stream, your occupation must be included in that applicable labour Agreement. They must demonstrate that they have the required skills, and this may involve a formal skill assessment. There is no age limit for this visa.
